Eviplera and Propecia

Nov 20, 2012


I have been taking Propecia successfully for the last 9 months along with Atripla. I am changing medication and will start taking Eviplera. Would these be okay to take together?

Response from Mr. Vergel

You meant Complera, I am sure.

They should not have considerable interactions.

But I would be very careful with Propecia since it can disrupt your hormonal axis. It is a DHT blocker. DHT (dehydrotestosterone) is a metabolite of testosterone that is responsible for sexual function but also it can affect hair follicles in younger ages. But it has been shown to present some problems by shutting down your testosterone production. You may want to read this: Propecia (finasteride) side effects
